- July 12th, 2017 11:00am to 12:30pm
Medicaid Compliance 101 & the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG)
Changes to the oversight of the Medicaid program led to the creation of the OMIG. Learn about the OMIG’s powers and duties, as well as its requirements for compliance plans and annual compliance certification for certain types of providers. Also, learn about the importance of compliance and other compliance-related issues. Join our presenters to hear about reducing Medicaid fraud, waste, and abuse before the Medicaid program is billed, and how to have systems that will identify when errors are made so that corrections can be initiated and made by providers. Provider misconduct, also known as “unacceptable practices,” will be illustrated along with the various sanctions available to the OMIG, including exclusion from the Medicaid program and enrollment termination. A question and answer period will be provided.
- August 3rd, 2017 11:00am to 12:30pm
Knowing Thy (Compliant) Self: How to Conduct a Medicaid Self Audit
Part of any provider’s compliance program is their compliance plan, and the key part of any compliance plan is the concept of risk assessment and self-auditing. This means identifying where errors are most likely to be made and then reviewing your Medicaid claims and documentation for compliance with applicable requirements. Hypotheticals for risk assessment and self-audit will be discussed. As participants will hear, self-auditing can be the best preventative medicine. A question and answer period will be provided.

Self-Disclosure is Not a Four Letter Word! Protocols & Procedures of Medicaid Self Disclosure
Under Obamacare, providers are required to report, repay and explain all Medicaid overpayments received. Learn what “overpayments” are, the sixty-day rule, and the federal False Claims Act, which imposes potentially severe civil liability on providers for failing to self-report, repay and explain overpayments received. Learn how to handle routine overpayment situations and also when to seek advice on non-routine matters. A question and answer period will be provided.
- August 17th, 2017 11:00am to 12:30pm
Preparing for, and Surviving, an OMIG Medicaid Audit
This workshop will provide you with an overview of how an OMIG Medicaid audit is conducted and how the audit process works. Learn how to prepare for the audit, how to interact with the auditors when they arrive, and when to seek counsel. Potential defenses to audit findings will also be briefly covered. A question and answer period will be provided.
